Topic: Effective Summary Judgment Practice in Federal Court

Date: November 17, 2022, 12:00pm to 1:30pm

What does it take for an employer’s lawyer to win summary judgment in federal court, and for that outcome to survive review at the appellate level? Conversely, what must an employee-side attorney do to reach trial, or to overturn a summary judgment on appeal? And when should plaintiffs consider moving affirmatively for summary judgment themselves, rather than just blocking the opposition?

In this FREE event, two top employment lawyers will share their own best practices. And crucially, we’ll hear from two federal judges on what works—and what doesn’t—in written and oral advocacy. Judge Chuang will discuss arguments at the trial level, while Judge Harris will examine arguments on appeal, with a special focus on the standard of review.

While the speakers will focus on examples in employment law, the event should provide insight to all civil practitioners.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Maryland Chapter of the Federal Bar Association and the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association. CLE credit is not offered.
